Yet another nazi-prison movie, that followed after Ilses success. This onehas the usual stuff;lesbian warden, sadistic guards, forced co-workers andlotsa young women in shower/softcore sex scenes. The only highlight inthismovie, is when the hero has his testicles removed, so the Kommandant canhave them implanted (he lost them on the front, to a russian girl). Ratherpredictable and the torture scenes are kindda boring - for anyone who haveseen this type of movie before.

Sergio Garrone's "SS Experiment Camp" is a total failure on every possiblelevel.This film was banned in Britain as a video nasty,but it surely isn'tas outrageous as many people claim.In fact it's pretty tame even by today'sstandards.There is some torture and humiliation and lots of nudity andsoft-core sex.Some scenes are pretty mean-spirited for example one woman whorefuses to go through the experiments is put into the tank.The temperatureis first put up to almost boiling point and then the dial is turned theother way making it icy cold.Still the film is extremely dull,so fans ofItalian exploitation may be disappointed.Avoid this one like theplague-watch "Beast in Heat" or "Gestapo's Last Orgy" instead!

SS Experiment Camp was one of the films to kick-start the video nastyfuror in the UK. As a result, for the past 25 years or so, it has beenconsidered a notorious film. However, like The Driller Killer, itprimarily attained it's infamous status due to the crude cover art usedon it's video box. Those people who actually watched the filmdiscovered that it was nowhere near as shocking as it's reputationsuggested. Furthermore, it is actually unintentionally hilarious on anumber of occasions. SS Experiment Camp is a bit of an enigma.
The story involves a group of women who are delivered to theaforementioned SS Experiment Camp. While there they are subjected tosome inexplicable experiments, which often seem to involve forcedcopulation with a group of Nazi studs (who it has to be said all lookstrangely Italian). The purpose of the experiments is to find the beststud from this Aryan select and transfer his balls onto the campcommandant who, as we discover, lost his when a Russian woman he wasraping bit his off.
Now, the above synopsis may well make the film sound deeply depravedand offensive. Well, it is sleazy and in highly dubious taste but theexecution of the film is so amateurish and unrealistic that it reallysounds a lot worse than it actually is. The depiction of the camp ismore Butlins than Belsen at times. The inmates seem relativelyunconcerned for the most part and the Nazi baddies are oftenhilariously unconvincing. That said, there are some nasty moments,particularly the treatment meted out to the young girl at the orgy; sheends up hanging naked upside down in a shot that recalls theaforementioned distasteful cover shot. But, generally speaking,sequences that achieve such offense are uncommon here. The scenesshowing the experiments, while certainly tasteless, are often morestrange than anything else. The copulation in a tank of water ideabeing an example where it is too bizarre to take altogether seriously.
The film does, however, have two uproariously funny sequences. Inneither case is the humour intentional...
Funny scene #1: In the first scene we have one of the Nazi studsreturning to the dorm and saying how much he is looking forward tobanging some hot women in the next experiment. The good Nazi, Helmut,takes offense at this and says, "I think every time you open your mouthyou talk sh*t", to which the bad Nazi replies, after a long pregnantpause, "Hey, I don't like that last remark you made....about sh*t". Cuea silly fight.
Funny scene #2: The second hilarious scene begins when Helmutdiscovers, just as he is about to have sex, that he has no balls. Hethen runs naked through the camp in search of the commandant. Once hefinally confronts him, he delivers the truly immortal line, "OK youbastard...what have you done to my balls?".
Both of the above scenes make the film worth enduring in a comedysense.
It's very sleazy. There's acres of full-frontal naked female flesh.It's occasionally gratuitously violent. But above all, the notorious SSExperiment Camp is, in the final analysis, a rather silly film.
This is a sleazy WW2 Nazi camp movie which plays more like a black comedy. In this film the poor female POW's get raped and groped by all and sundry at the camp. In an amusing comic twist the commandant decides he wants a new pair of testicles and so removes them from one of the hunky guards. The guard doesn't seem to realise he's been castrated until he goes to bonk one of the French prisoners. This provides one of the most amusing scenes when he confronts the commandant and says "You Bastard. what have you done with my Balls?".
